Ben and Zack Commacho were recently up here to Minnesota for a long weekend trip. The first two days were a bit slow, with some bad weather thrown in, but they more than made up for it on the last day. Ten-year-old Zack got a 20.5-inch smallmouth, just a smidge bigger than his father’s 20.25-incher.
To top off a stellar day on the water, Ben landed a 45-inch muskie on the same water that the upcoming Orvis Muskie School will be held. (My other guide, Nick, is holding Ben’s fish.) To say that they had a day they soon won’t forget is an understatement.
